    *dedicated to mi galfriend, Mireille Duclos Abdallah, whereabouts still unknown*

    Tall and slender Haitian gurllle
    virgin to it all
    speakin dat crazy "pa tois"
    she havin herself a ball

    Young and tender island gurllle
    go to CAL-EE-FO-NY-A
    hook up wit de
    dregs in dreads
    now she ky'an get away

    She toke de herb
    she smoke de pipe
    she shoot de her-o-wine
    now no ky'an recognize de gurllle
    she use to be so fyne

    She slur de French
    she yellow eyes
    we ky'an com-mu-ni-cate
    she skurrd she got de AIDS disease
    she tink it be too late

    "Pauvre Petite"
    poor little one who came
    from Port-au-Prince
    she say she gWan come back last year
    but I not see her since

    I searched de dark and wicked streets
    I searched dis big L.A.
    but now I just pray fa mi gurllle
    ma cher, my dear, Mireille

    avec amour,

    ta bonne copaine, toujours
